I am just beginning reading some posts and doing some research. It is very overwhelming there are soooo many restaurants! A lot of people tend to have every meal planned out based on their tours for the day (or vise versa). Of course being a chowhounder I am very interested in great food and value, but kind of assumed most of the food is great in Rome (but expensive). After some reading it seems not so.
I am wondering how much planning do you recommend? If I wing it, will I be disappointed? My SO will go nuts if I have every meal planned LOL! I am thinking maybe a general list of places around the city that we can hit depending on where we are is the way to go.
